A great surprise

We were given some tokens for Horatios and were a little apprehensive about what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and not too hard to pay overall. We will definitely return.

Food tour started and ended here and both courses were excellent. The food was cooked and flavoured well, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the cocktails were tasty and well priced. We ended up staying well after the four ended as the atmosphere was great. Will be returning soon to enjoy a full meal here. Well done guys, the... More

We went out for a family lunch on 13th July in the middle of the afternoon. As it was a public holiday we did expect the restaurant to be busy. Our only complaint was that there were so many unrully toddlers whose parents didnt try to stop them. I really think that there should be some rules that parents should... More

My wife an I ate here one Friday evening. It is essentially a pub restaurant. Food was OK and not bad despite being slightly pricey. The thing that disgusted me was at the public bar. I watched all manner of staff making expensive cocktails and even simple drinks. They use their bare hands to cradle ice into glasses from scoops,... More

Dear Bob S I would like to assure you that hygiene is something we are very stringent on within Horatio Todd’s and I am therefore surprised to read your comments. All bar staff are trained to use the ice scoops to place ice in the glass; their hands are used only as a barrier to prevent ice from spilling onto... More

Here for a meal last week and the food quality was way beyond our expectations. Menu is reasonably priced and there are a wide variety of delicious cocktails to choose from. Lovely atmosphere and can move over to the livelier bar area after food.

We booked for dinner in the evening after my 2 sons' graduation ceremonies. We were seated at a good big round table where we had loads of room. Although it was Tuesday night, it was quite busy & lively in the bar but this only made for a great atmosphere and our evening was relaxed and enjoyable. We had an... More

Hi, I did leave feedback on the card in the restaurant which you obviously haven't read, so here it goes. We had mussels for a starter and the bowl for cleaning our hands arrived as my husband had already gone to the toilets to wash his hands, it then stayed with us throughout our main course and whilst we finished...
